Bach- Cello Suite No. 1 in G Major

I listened to this over, and over, and over again as I wrote by candlelight in the still of the night with the rest of the house sleeping. Incidentally, this is also what I came down the aisle to at my wedding…

In this scene, an unsettling string of mid-night events is concluded by the mysterious sound of this song, slipping through the trees.
